Rob Goodwin AW11

One of my all time favourite shoe designers, who frankly needs more recognition than he gets. Rob Goodwin is a leather fiend, I've got a theory that he hoards rolls and rolls of it in his home and skins his own animals by day, dying them into rich colours by night. That might be a little bit too much, but his footwear is no less than incredible.
Rob uses the quirkiest of fabrics, including ostrich shin to give his footwear an edge that you don't see all too often these days. The detailing in the ostrich shin is something which no other fabric can imitate, and makes his designs even more unique.
This collection sees the introduction of unisex footwear in the flat boot, and the return of his androgynous, military inspired accessories, such as winged leather hats and body armour with heavy metal embellishment (above).
